    As the title implies, what is it and how is it used and what can it do for me?

    The app store description is almost non existant and says nothing, and I can find any instructions for it. The web in general isnt much help either.

    It's just a browser like Safari but with a lot more features such as file manipulation.

    But how is it used?

    As soon as I open the app it asks me for 'server' , 'user name' and 'pass word'

    What's that all about? As I say, I can't find any instructions how to use it.

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same product... iCabMobile is just a web browser and when you open it, it should resemble Safari... If it does not, then either it is not iCabMobile or it is in some sort of setup screen. Try force-closing it and restarting it and see what you get...

    I just checked it out - not sure what it's all about... As you said, don't understand why you need an https server to begin with. I certainly couldn't get it to connect to anything. Oh well, just be happy it was free and remove it I guess...

    It says it uses RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). This is a feature of Windows XP and later. I bet it wants the windows domain server. I've only used RDP (quite a while ago) in an enterprise network.

    I suppose it might work for a computer on a local network, if the computer has RDP enabled. You could make sure it's enable on your machine and then enter the computer's local IP address, and your user logon for the computer.

    iCab does not work on my iPad

    I installed iCabMobile 3 days ago from App Store on my iPad and tried to setup both Safari and iCab setting (put browser ID: standard). But still does not work with internet video such as webinars, presentation, .. that use flash. I also got a message ask to install Adobe 10. What am I missing? Please help.
    Thanks

    I think you may be confused - iCab Mobile does not enable you to play flash content. It enables you to fool the website into thinking you are using a desktop browser, so that you will get the "full" version of sites, but it cannot magically provide flash support on your iPad device.

    Hope this helps.
